Join GenPride at the Movies on Friday, June 25 at 6 pm for a free online showing of Disclosure, a documentary spotlighting the history of transgender people in the media and winner of the 2021 GLAAD Media award for Outstanding Documentary.

In this documentary, transgender filmmakers, including Laverne Cox and Sam Feder, examine trans representation in TV and film, illustrating how Hollywood has not only affected how the world views trans people but also how these representations influence and shape trans people’s views of themselves.

This deeper look at transgender depictions in film and television reveals how Hollywood simultaneously reflects and creates society’s deepest anxieties about gender.


Enjoy the movie followed by an online discussion on Friday, June 25 at 6 pm.

Introduction to Qigong

Join instructor Kimberly Ivy of Embrace the Moon Tai Chi and Qigong School as we continue exploring the fascinating world of Qigong!

In this series, we will practice Essence Qigong, a very gentle form that invites us to smoothly inhabit the body and mind and move our energy, blood, and awareness throughout. Essence Qigong is a synthesis of five schools of Qigong practice: Buddhist, Taoist, Confucianism, Martial, and Medical. Each of the six routines used will explore the essence of these schools of thought.

Kim will also incorporate supplemental exercises such as Buddhist and Taoist breathing techniques for relaxation and energy, Yin/Yang Walking for balance and pliancy, and San Jiao or Triple Heater to balance elimination, digestion, and respiration. This class welcomes beginners and ongoing students alike, as well as all fitness and experience levels. You can easily practice this form from a seated position or with more physical engagement, depending on your preference. Classes are Fridays from 10:30am to 11:30am beginning April 16, 2021.

To attend this series, please register here: http://genpri.de/qigong

Fridays  10:30 to 11:30am 

April 16– June 4 

GenPride Health and Wellness Programming

Classes are free and open to all senior and older adult LGBTQIA+, their Significant Others, Friends, Family, Allies, or Caregivers.

Join us for this 40-minute movement-based class that integrates full-body strength, balance, and core-strengthening exercises.


Exercises will focus on strengthening the major muscle groups of the body in vertical and horizontal positions for strength and challenging our static and dynamic balance.

In this virtually-taught class, we will use our own body weight using a chair for balance for support and a mat to aid various core strengthening exercises.


Every Tuesday

from 3:45 – 4:25 pm


Experience with yoga or stretching is not required. This class is designed to be approachable by all populations, regardless of fitness level. Moves in class are broken down in a slow and manageable manner.

The intention of the class is to move a little and have a lot of fun – even if you don’t perform each move perfectly.


Mondays | 11 am – Noon

Wednesdays | 3:30 – 4:30 pm

Fridays | 3:30 – 4:30 pm


More Classes Coming soon!
